Samuel Goldwyn Films and Phase 4 Films have partnered up to distribute “Goodbye World” in the US. The film, which screened in competition at the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival and features a large cast of notable stars including Adrian Grenier (“Entourage”), Gaby Hoffmann (“Louie”), Ben McKenzie (“Southland”) and rapper Kid Cudi, is set to open next Spring.
“Goodbye World is a unique apocalyptic movie about what happens between a cataclysmic event and the trials of survival to come in the new world — that time when you decide who you will stand with and who you will fight,” said director Denis Henry Hennelly.
The official plot synopsis:
James and Lily live off the grid, raising their young daughter in a cocoon of comfort and sustainability. When a mysterious mass text ripples its way across the country, triggering a crippling, apocalyptic cyber attack, their home transitions from sheltered modern oasis to a fortress for the estranged old friends that show up at their door for protection and community. The unexpected reunion–abundant with revelry and remembrances, generously enhanced by organic wine and weed–is quickly undermined by the slights of the past, the spark of lingering flirtations and the threat of a locally grown new world order.
